Workplace Investigations

Ice Miller is the go-to firm for experienced investigations of employee complaints or employee misconduct. Our Workplace Investigation Team routinely serves as a trusted advisor to adeptly and promptly uncover the facts while helping the employer to stabilize the workforce or those impacted. Having conducted numerous investigations involving sensitive internal complaints of harassment or other improper behavior, violations of company policy, violations of law or unethical conduct, our team confidently and compassionately can handle any risk creating event for the company. We also have experience with Title IX investigations.

Paramount to any investigation team is the judgement and balance required of the investigators. Thus, clients often consult our team with preliminary questions such as whether an outside investigation is needed or strategies to limit risk. Human resources, employee relations and internal legal departments frequently consult with our team to confirm compliance and adherence to best practices. In these ways, we help companies conduct their own investigations where circumstances permit.

Often our investigation team must work in tandem with other important stakeholders, and consequently, our team brings breadth and depth as it relates to advising leadership and executive teams, consulting with the board of directors or trustees and working with internal marketing and communications. In addition, our team understands the importance of cooperation with external partners, such as crisis management firms, public relations and auditors.

While we hope our services for such investigations are never needed, our team handles such investigations with the utmost sensitivity and professionalism.
